Midfielder interviewed in Morecambe programme

Gary Roberts is pleased with the positive start Pompey have made to the 2015/16 campaign.

Successive victories over Dagenham, Derby and Plymouth were followed by a goalless draw at Crawley on Tuesday night.

Roberts has played a pivotal role and opened his goalscoring account from the penalty spot at Home Park.

But the midfielder is well aware that prizes are not awarded for how well you do in August.

“It’s pleasing to get up and running with three wins on the spin and everything’s been looking quite rosy,” he says in the official matchday magazine for Saturday’s clash with Morecambe. “It’s a good opening, but it’s nothing yet.

“You want to still be up there around October or November time when the run of games starts slowing down a bit, so we’ll just keep our heads down and continue to work hard.

“We won’t get carried away because there are a lot of games still to play and we haven’t won anything yet. The older lads wouldn’t let that happen.

“It’s nice that the fans are getting excited and they deserve to have something to cheer, but they’re not stupid and know it is a long season.”

Read the full interview – where Roberts also discusses why he moved to Pompey over the summer – by picking up a copy of the programme from sellers around Fratton Park on Saturday.

Also in issue three, Michael Doyle dishes the dirt on his team-mates and Jack Whatmough selects his dream team.
